Someone's happy...*updated*

Do you know why?

Cos I sew for him, his favourite train t-shirt.

Toby is his favourite train. The longest among all his fav trains (Henry and Gordon). Look at poor Toby, patah here and koyak there. Since there's only Thomas T -shirt in the market and no Toby shirt, so I thought why not sew one for him. It's not perfectly sewn but he likes it. And that is what matters the most.

P/s: some of you asked if I bought the toby and iron/sew it on. No ler... toby not popular. So i gotto join a few pcs of felt and plain cloth for the different section of Toby body. Sew the face on white plain cloth. Used buttons for the train bumper and also the "DUUUT" on his forehead. The eyes are made using the "snap button". Here is the cacat sewing, closed up.
